“One-night I dreamt that I had murdered someone, and I couldn’t get it out of my head. The next day I wrote a stream of conscious story triggered by this nightmare.” Emma Calder.
A woman with extreme anxiety is devoured by four major preoccupations – the man she met by chance on a train, her dying father, her daughter’s safety and the murder she dreams she has committed.
Award winning animation director Emma Calder takes you on an emotional rollercoaster through a world vision collaged from traditional pencil drawings to complex colourful digital manipulation of models and photographs.
